Preserve Your Rights Through Paternity Actions

It is important for parents to understand their responsibilities to their children and to assert their rights to maintain relationships with those children.

In court, our firm can get paternity established by requesting DNA tests that will prove parentage. For our clients, we can explain the process of establishing parentage, while helping you understand what that will mean for you going forward. Parents have a right to be in their children's lives and obtaining legal recognition is an important step in that process.
